Muckle Toon Adventure Festival

Ben Smith, 401 Challenge

None other than Ben Smith, 401 Challenge Marathon runner joined the MATF party in 2017!!
Ben undertook an attempt to run 401 marathons in 401 days all around the UK, visiting 309 different locations visiting the Muckle Toon twice.

The challenge aimed to raise both awareness of the issues of bullying in our society along with £250,000 for two amazing charities dedicated to tackling bullying. The challenge took it’s toll on Ben physically when he had to stop running for 10 days to receive emergency treatment for a spinal fracture. Regardless Ben continued and achieved his objective, smashing his fundraising target, raising more than £310,000 through generous donations.

Ben was awarded the Helen Rollason award for outstanding achievement in the face of adversity at the 2016 Sport Personality of the Year award ceremony.

Ben joined us at Basecamp to run the 5K, participate in prize giving and headline our Tent Talks Series on Sunday afternoon.
